By: Rachel Bonello
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Jan. 19, 2015 — Southfield, Mich.-based Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company, announced today that they are hosting a food drive to benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. The trucks will arrive to be filled on Jan. 30, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at four Farbman Group office buildings located in Southfield, Bingham Farms, Troy and Detroit.
“Local families are in need of our support beyond the traditional season of giving,” said Andy Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group. “During the past six years, we have purposely hosted our food drive in January as a reminder of the importance to continue giving year round.”
As an added incentive to donate, each person who contributes either five cans of food or $5 during the day of the food drive will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an iPad Mini, complements of Farbman Group.
Gleaners Food Bank recommends donating high protein canned items such as peanut butter, tuna fish and beans. There is also a great need for individually packaged healthy snacks for kids, such as fruit cups, granola bars and pretzels. Personal care items such as toothpaste, deodorant and soap will be collected as well.
Donations can be dropped off at the following locations:
- Essex Centre, 28400 Northwestern Highway, Southfield, Mich. 48034;
- Bingham Office Center, 30600-30800 Telegraph Road, Bingham Farms, Mich. 48025;
